I noticed last week that my drivers side heated seat are not functioning. It seems that there may a little bit of heat coming through.... the light on the switch is working and the passenger side seems to be ok.
Please advise. Much appreciated.

Hi there.... thanks for the response.... would you be able to provide insight/directions to checking continuity/unplugging the seat heater.
Do I have to take seat off/ or can I access this from under the seat. if so which plug?
Does the rx350 have heat elements or is it a heating pad.... would I have to replace these parts as well?
Thanks again. and I applogize if some of these q's are...
i havent replaced them on the lexus brand, only when i worked at Acura. they should be similar layout (probably same supplier)
look under the seat to find the plug, there should be two, one for the seat bottom, one for the seat back. both plugs should only have two wires going to them. most multimeters have an option to check continuity, when the prongs are touched, the machine will beep. now connect them to the two wires and hope they beep. if they beep, then the seat heater pad is good, and you have another problem. if it doesnt beep, then there is a braek in the connection, and it needs to be replaced.
as far as which plug, just make sure its not the ones going to the seat motors.
perhaps someone else in the forum can shed some more light.
